The world faces a range of persistent and emerging public health challenges – infectious disease, ageing, climate change, under- and over-nutrition, and the risk of legal drugs in the community, to name just a few.
At the same time, according to the World Health Organization (WHO), there is a global shortage of public health professionals to help address these challenges.*
Our 100% online Master of Public Health (MPH) is a modern interdisciplinary programme designed to equip you with the insights and understanding to help advance your career and respond to these evolving public health needs.
As you study alongside peers from across the globe, you’ll learn to plan and implement solutions and strategies to promote health, prevent disease and improve the quality of life of communities around the world.
All Roehampton degrees are recognised by the UK government, and the University complies with the academic standards monitored by the government’s Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education (QAA).
These standards are the same for all programmes – undergraduate, postgraduate and research-based – whether delivered online or on campus. This means you’ll receive the same standard of education as Roehampton students studying on campus and have the opportunity to graduate in London.
